Indie developers are currently crowd-sourcing the money to create a new video game documentary called Pretending I’m a Superman: The Tony Hawk Game Story.
In the 1990s, the skateboarding industry was at a record-breaking low. Then, in 1999, as the decade grew to a close, the first Tony Hawk game was released; as if to save the entire industry. The game not only inspired people to pick up a controller, but to also get out there and skate for real. The first Tony Hawk game sold 9 million copies for PlayStation.
Since then, over 18 games have been released and Tony Hawk (the video game franchise) is known as one of the greatest of all time.
The developers have shot 20% of the documentary themselves, but to proceed, they need funding. The campaign has already raised 10% of its goal since the campaign began, but they still have a long way to go.
Contributors will receive exclusive gifts such as free downloads, updates, their name in the credits, a DVD copy, t-shirts, Tony Hawk’s autograph, a signed deck, an interview, and a chance to meet Tony Hawk in California.
If all goes well, the film will be released in fall of 2018. But in order for that to happen, they need your help. Support them by visiting their campaign page.
